DID YOU KNOW...
Your Lymphatic System plays a big role in removing harmful toxins from your body?
Not only does it remove harmful toxins but it also helps fight infections such as cancer. Through a network of lymph vessels and nodes it collects waste material, fluid, viruses and bacteria that are in body tissue and out of the blood stream.

There’s been an ongoing conversation happening in the breast cancer community for a while. A conversation about whether or not checking yourself helps detect a cancer diagnosis or is even necessary for your own health.

Here at Keep A Breast, we strongly believe that knowing your body and your "normal" is essential to your health. It's crucial to understand and be aware when something is wrong, even as a teen or young adult.
